Well, there is a British Standard Finger.
You use it for poking into holes ... to see if you can touch anything dangerous.

I became aware of this when my PM and I took a mains powered cobbled together prototype (housed in a bunch of cardboard boxes with slots cut for ventilation) into a major company headquarters. We had to make the slots thin enough that the BSF couldn't hit the mains components (but nobody cared about the rather larger risk of the whole thing catching fire - why did you think it needed ventilation in the first place? Laugh | :laugh: )
